Heinz 430x286
We're still at 9 players going into the second break in the November Nine.   Pius Heinz has be far been the biggest surprise in my opinion.   He has skyrocketed to the chip leadership with 49. 95 Million in chips.

Pokerati Injects Life into Lackluster WSOP Media Conference Call

3 November 2011 , By: compncards
ESPN 430x285
Earlier this afternoon, I sat in on the WSOP November Nine conference call. It really should have been called a Q&A session as the whole session consisted of us asking questions related to the November Nine. As a quick summary, the major points you can take away from the call are that: Hole cards will be available after each and every hand, including those that conclude pre-flop.   One benefit is to prevent tanking until the coverage syncs with their hand.

Bwin.Party to Try and Take Over the Online Poker World

31 October 2011 , By: compncards
Bwin.Party 314x300
Many months ago, I made a prediction that when online poker becomes legalized, Bwin. Party will become the #1 site in all of online poker[[sitetree_link,id=13]]. That prediction is looking more likely than ever to come true after Bwin. party announced a partnership with MGM and Boyd Gaming that will create a new US poker site[[sitetree_link,id=596]]conglomerate once poker is regulated in America.

29 October 2011 , By: compncards
Looks like the Full Tilt Poker press release writer got a new job working for the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. The following was the press release sent out by the KGC on Friday: "Since the actions taken by the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York (the “SDNY”) on April 15, 2011, the Commission has been in close and regular discussions with its licensee, Blanca Games Inc. (“Blanca”), operating as Absolute Poker and UB. com (“AP/UB”), to facilitate the reimbursement of both US and non-US players.

Nailed 2011 Hall of Fame Voting and 2012 Hall of Fame Predictions

I told you so. Today, the World Series of Poker announced that Barry Johnson and Linda Johnson will be the newest inductees into the Poker Hall of Fame. Barry seemed the obvious choice to me. He had the best pedigree of those on the finalist list in regards to overall poker prowess.

Harrah's Cherokee - What a Bummer

Cherokee 400x300
Earlier this week, I spent a couple of days in Cherokee, NC. My primary reason for going was to check out Harrah’s Cherokee. While I am not a huge fan of many Harrah’s properties, this is the only casino option in the state and the poker room was supposed to be a fairly hopping place. I want to know whose definition of hopping they were using.

WSOP Europe Predictions Revisited

20 October 2011 , By: compncards
Mizrachi 430x286
The WSOP Europe has reached their final table with Shawn Buchanan, Chris Moorman, and Jake Cody headlining.   Normally I would wait until after Main Event was finished to update my predictions, but since none of my predictions are impacted by the final table, I figured I would go ahead and share how I did. *Phil Hellmuth Will Have One Strong Showing and May Take the POY Lead - Push* After Hellmuth whiffed Events 2 through 7, I almost considered this a loss, but since my wording said "may take the lead" I get to call this a push.   I know, I am angle shooting my own predictions.

WSOP Makes Logical Move With Live Coverage of November Nine

Mothership 430x286
The World Series of Poker announced on Sunday that the final table of the 2011 WSOP Main Event would be broadcast semi-live and with hole cards. This complements the live coverage that the WSOP provided during the summer on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPN3. com. While this seemed the next logical step for the November Nine, I still applaud the WSOP for taking this step forward with the final-table broadcast.
